On This Years Wish List

I hit the record store this weekend in hopes of picking up some Talib or Adriana (man that’s a work of art). Instead I picked up a few records I already had on mp3 but the acapella an instrumental on Tight Eyes was worth it.

The one thing I did see that can make it onto the Christmas list this year is the Wax Poetic Anthology. Anyone who has read this magazine knows it’s the bible of nerd knowledge in music. It features various articles from the first 5 volumes of the magazine and the that are nothing short of drool-worthy.

Highlights
• James Brown’s drummers Clyde Stubblefield and Jab’O Starks, bassist Sweet Charles, and vocalist Marva Whitney
• Jazz genius Charles Mingus
• Funky drummers Idris Muhammad and Pretty Purdie
• Salsa giant Fania Records
• Reggae producers Clive Chin and King Tubby
• Golden-era hip-hop producers Prince Paul, Da Beatminerz, Diamond D, and Wu-Tang’s the RZA
• Films Wild Style and Style Wars
• Breakbeat bootleg Ultimate Breaks & Beats
• Rare-record reviews
